The greatest season in Napoleon High School football history continued last Friday night as the Pirates defeated Monroe St. Mary Catholic Central Falcon’s 14-7 in a defensive battle at Monroe for the Pirates’ first football regional title in school history and twelfth win of the season.

The Pirates now will face perennial power Lumen Christi this Saturday at Chelsea High School in the Division 7 MHSAA Semi-Finals at 1 p.m. with the winner advancing to the state championship game at Ford Field on Friday, November 26.
